vacances au top

  • 5 of 5

Je me devais de laisser un message après deux semaines passées à Monte Placido et je dois dire que ces vacances vont rester dans les annales.

Pour commencer parlons du lieu : Monte placido a l'avantage d'être située dans les hauteurs (je ne vous parle pas de la vue panoramique du pays ...) et se situe entre toutes les plus belles plages du coin : Bonita, Cosos, Rincon et Moron. La région est magnifique et si je devais faire le point sur tout ce que j'ai vu je pourrais écrire un annuaire ….

La résidence présente l'avantage d'être très proche de la ville en scooter (que les propriétaires peuvent louer aux locataires ainsi qu'un quad) ce qui permet de participer à la vie nocturne du pays, de faire des courses sans partir à l'autre bout du monde et surtout de ne pas se retrouver en plein milieu des quartiers de touristes.

Les propriétaires sont vraiment sympathiques et Donald (le propriétaire) est totalement bilingue français anglais et espagnol ce qui aide vraiment beaucoup. Toujours de bon conseils, ils nous ont aiguillé ma copine et moi durant notre séjour : ces gens sont très sympathiques et on ne se sent vraiment pas traité comme un touriste.

Pour ce qui est du confort, la villa est parfaitement équipée (service de maison impeccable) et est très sécurisée (même si je pense que la rep dom est contrairement aux idées reçus un pays calme et pas dangereux).

Pour les gens casaniers, il y a même une piscine à débordement incroyable avec vue imprenable sur le pays …. une vraie carte postale (il y a même un barbecue à coté de la piscine).

Bref, si vous voulez de vraies vacances, souffler, voir du pays et des gens sympathiques, je vous recommande vivement d'aller y faire un tour vous allez pouvoir déconnecter du quotidien !

I feel bad it's taken me so long to write about this unbelievable location. By far, this was the best part of our trip. We are very active individuals on our vacations, but we HAD to at least spend a whole day lounging around the infinity pool drinking fresh coconuts... taking in the view from our balcony in the Falcona. I can see how people would come visit and spend all their time on this property. It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. And the fact that we had access to a car for our time there was perfect! I will forever recommend it to others. Thank you for our wonderful stay, Don!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments. For the past 12 years it has been an ongoing project to try to make MONTE PLACIDO a little better piece of paradise. Diana and I still have plenty of things on our list. You are right, you should be independent and have your own mode of transportation to visit just 1 beach but all the prisitine beache(S) of Samana Peninsula. Exclusively for our guests we offer our own vehicles (motorbike, quad/ATV, scooter and car...)

tranquillo, lindo

  • 3 of 5

I guide bird tours. I came to see the area and find the place ideal for a relaxed

vacation, above the bustle of the coastal town, but with access to all the restaurants, beaches and shopping possible.

The host and hostess are very welcoming.

This is a very good choice for persons desiring privacy yet access at the same time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kate, Yes, many of our guests appreciate close to town but enjoy the our pastoral setting and easy access to the beaches.

Outstanding vacation at Monte Placido!

  • 5 of 5

After the never-ending winter of 2014 - wI needed to get away to restore ourselves and didn't know where to go.We had never been to the DR, as whenever all we'd heard about it - all-inclusive resorts of Punta Cana/Puerto Plata. When we travel, we prefer to take in a bit more of the culture and not follow the masses and do our own thing. AND I'm happy to say, we found it at Monte Placido, located on an idealic hilltop on the Samana Peninsula in the DR.

If you can fly into El Catey, do it! It's only 40 minutes- mostly beautiful scenic drive along the coast of the azure-colored Atlantic Ocean on a brand new hwy. Once you get to Monte Placido, (yes, it's a steep hill, but after going up once and tackling a couple of sharp turns - you'll get the hang of it) put it in the low-gear, take it steady and you'll be compensated by a breathtaking view.

You are welcomed by 5 Spanish-style ochre-colored houses surrounded by a smartly landscaped garden with a kaleidoscope of tropical flowers with lush trees to give each unit their own sense of privacy - juxtaposed by an infinity pool. While you're obviously not on the beach - you are surrounded in the foreground by a 180 degree view of the Atlantic coastline with a constant warm ocean breeze.Each of the units are charmingly decorated - kept immaculately clean with all that you need (Flat screen Sat TV with a few English channels) WiFi if you need to be connected, fully equipped kitchens with all necessary dishware, pot&pans, etc.Some units are fenced, making them dog-friendly should you decide to bring Fido along!

Owners Don and Diana, who live on-site in the center villa, are very conscientious of guest privacy. We barely saw them unless we rang their bell. The groundskeeper Jean-Claude, along with the rest of the crew are extremely polite and are mindful of any noise

You can discover so much of the region as Monte Placido is located at the centre of the Samana Peninsula making most attraction nearby (we were at secluded world-class beaches in 15 minutes) and most others within 1 hour away at the most. The town of Los Terranas is nothing special, but are countless great dinning options.

IN short - if you have a penchant for the standard all-inclusive experience then this is not the place for you. BUT, if you're in for something special with lots of local charm and a priceless setting , then, be sure to put Monte Placido on your Caribbean 'bucket list'. You will not regret it.We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: It says it all! Nothing to add, except that for those that want to stay on MONTE PLACIDO and enjoy it even more, we can have a cook come up on site in your home and prepare special meals with a French Creole touch for you just for two or a whole family.
